Esai started on oatmeal when he was 4 months. He was 2.5 x his birthweight, so the doc said it was a good time. The doc is supportive of BFing and usually recommends no solids until 6 months, but because Esai had gained so much so fast, he said it might be a good time to give him something extra, but not to decrease his BM intake.
At 5 months, we started single foods: bananas, avacadoes, sweet potatoes ... next week peas, then apples.
We just do a little in the morning and a little bit at night.
Anyway ... When he's 6 months, I want to start giving him three solids a day. So answer me this:
1. Do I (or daycare) feed him a meal of breastmilk (or expressed BM) first, then feed him his solids?
2. He shouldn't decrease his BM intake yet, right?
3. When should he decrease his BM intake, if ever?
